Weekend Getaway to Murchison Falls


The 3 days/2 nights weekend getaway is an ideal option for busy but rather adventurous travelers. You get to see lots in 2 nights. It can be an extension to any Wildlife or Primate long Safari. The exciting journey takes you into Uganda’s oldest National park which lies on the Northern end of the Albertine rift Valley.

A visit to the Rhino sanctuary is a good start as you learn and track the only Rhinos in the country. You will go on game drives and search for Big Game then later have a relaxing boat cruise along the Nile towards the bottom of the thunderous Murchison falls.

Safari Itinerary

Day 1 – Entebbe Murchison Falls N.P via Kampala – App. 6 hours’ drive. 

Adventure consults’ guide will meet you at the hotel or residence (if already in Uganda), or meet on arrival at the airport and start the adventure by 8:30am latest. Beginning with a panoramic drive northwest, a stop and visit to the ZIWA RHINO SANCTUARY is worth it! The sanctuary was created to re-introduce Rhino to Uganda after their extinction in 1982. Drive around the sanctuary endowed with lots of colourful Bird species.

After lunch, proceed to Murchison falls National Park.  Time permitting, you have an option to drove to the top of the Murchison Falls, from this vantage point you will have an opportunity to see the Nile's beauty perfected as you watch the Nile forced through a seven-meter cleft in the rocks and plunge 45 meters below, forming a spectacular rainbow.

Dinner and overnight accommodation included at the hotel/lodge.

Day 2. Morning Game Drive and afternoon Water Safari Adventure.

Early morning game drive to the delta circuit where there’s a possibility of spotting the leopards along the leopard track, the Jackson's hartebeest, large concentrations of Uganda Kobs because of the many breeding grounds and large families of the Defassa waterbuck, together with giraffe herds, groups of the dainty oribi and buffalo herds. The high supply of Kobs means unavoidable pride of lions to the delta too.

In the afternoon, you will safari upstream by boat to the calm Victoria Nile and the base of the falls just tens of meters from the "Devil's Cauldron." Return to the lodge for a relaxed evening.
